Rangers academy graduate Jamie Barjonas has joined former Ibrox youth coach Kevin Thomson at League Two club Kelty Hearts.

Thomson is the new manager of the recently-promoted League Two side after coaching experience with Rangers. He replaced fellow former Ibrox man Barry Ferguson as manager at New Central Park and Thomson has wasted no time in signing new recruits.

Barjonas joins after being released from a lengthy spell in the Rangers youth system, having had loan spells away from Glasgow, most recently with Scottish Championship club Ayr United. Kelty have already snapped up Joe Cardle from Partick Thistle and Jordon Foster after his time at Dundee as the Lowland League champions prepare for SPFL life.

Kelty Hearts said of Barjonas’ signing: “We are pleased to announce our third signing of the season, Jamie Barjonas from Rangers. Jamie joins the club on a one year deal after spending time at Ayr at the end of last season on loan. The 22-year-old who plays midfield also had time at EFL club Bury, Raith Rovers and Partick Thistle on loan.

 

“Jamie is a product of the Rangers youth academy having been with the club since he was nine years old. Welcome to New Central Park Jamie!”
